SEVEN LIES OF THE INDEPENDENT BAPTIST
were no pastors the first 150 years of the Church and not one in
the Book of Acts"
We used to proclaim "JESUS is LORD," but now we say
"Pastor is Lord!"
Now for you real men that care for your flocks, and manage your
churches according to the
New Testament, I thank God for you, and I am 100% for the
Godly Shepherd, who gently leads, and does not drive sheep
Now, gentlemen we have a problem in the Independent Baptist
movement. You know that I am Independent. This
teaching about the modern day Pastor as it is today is
unscriptural, and that's how this legalism got started in the
Independent Baptist movement ( HEAR ME OUT). I have
counted the lost at the loss of many, but not if you really
believe the Bible, or if you believe the traditions of men.
It's your choice.
These "so called" pastors or men of God are not above the laity,
right? I bet you're screaming "foul" already! I
thought that you said that you was a Bible preacher? Come
on now, this is just a portion of my sermon. Hang with me!
First of all: No where in your KJV Bible, that you say you
believe, will you find a Church that was ruled by one man.
NOWHERE!!!!! (except by a rat in Third John)
Yet, today most churches are. But, where in the Bible does
it say that a church should be ruled by one man?
you know that there was only one church in the New Testament
ruled by one man? In Third John verse 9, Diotrephes, John
said, he threw people out of church and loved to have
This had to be an Independent Baptist.
I know your blood pressure is up, and you're mad! But it's
still the Bible that you profess to believe! The word
"pastor" is used with out end in THIS DAY! But I
guess you know it's only mentioned only one time in the New
Testament in Ephesians 4:11
Oh, by the way; did Paul ever write in one single
book to the pastor of one church? Nod your pointed little
Pharisee head! Or did he write to the ELDERS, not just to this
one man system that we copied from the Catholics. One
pastor told me, "I am the head of this Church." Well excuse me!
I thought Paul said CHRIST was the Head! Now Paul wrote to
Bishops, Elders, and Overseers, always plural, never to
the Pastor at Galatia or Philippi. You say, "Brother
Johnny, you're the only one that believes this. You're
nuts!" Your Scofield Bible, that you love and will stick
by until you die, in his notes (Old Scofield, you know the kind
the KJV people love, but don't know. ha ha ha) states, 'There
is no instance of one elder in a local church. Elders are
made or set in the churches by the Holy Spirit (Acts 20:28).
At first they were ordained by an Apostle (Acts 14:23), but in
Titus and 1 Timothy the qualifications of an elder became part
of the Scriptures for the guidance of the churches." Read
his footnotes. You say, "He ain't inspired." Neither
are you, but you love Scofield!
Also, Scofield's notes on Third John "John says the aged
Apostle had written to a Church which allowed one Diotrephes to
exercise an authority common enough in later ages, but wholly
new in the primitive churches. Historically this letter
marks the beginning of that clerical and priestly assumption
over the Churches in which the Primitive Church order
declare to you that the first 150 of the church there was no
such thing as the "one man rule all system." Like it, lump
it or jump it!
I'm reading your thoughts, "Well, our pastor is not head
of the Church, but a servant of the church"
See, whether he is a servant or not depends on the kind of man
he is, not his position as pastor.
can be a servant and serve his people without being in the
elevated position of authority that exists today.
you see what's happened and why there is so much trouble in our
ranks? We have done something that GOD has not done.
We have elevated, and put pastors on a pedestal above God's dear
That why people like the Resaca management can lie and steal,
and think they are right with God. Because they are above the
people they will demonize anybody that tells them you do not
rule over me big boy!
You know, God hates seeing his people put below a "so called"
pastor that runs God's children away from church, telling them,
"I am the boss, fire me if you don't like what I do, and
you better not question me or you will be Churched! You
say, "my pastor has an office of a Bishop." Hey silly!
So did Judas! So, what does that make you? Also, Judas was
a Bishop, but never pastored a church (Acts 1:20)!
PART TWO IS UP COMING
You probably will be mad, but it's not me you're mad at!
It's this Bible you say you believe!
Now, all your questions will be answered about the Bishops and
Elders. You say, "Johnny, you're gonna catch it!"
Hey, I ain't moving! You said you believe the Bible.
Did you know that no preacher ever received a salary in the New
Testament? You really know the truth about this double
honor business , but you just believe what you were told to
believe by saying, "What ever you pay me, I'm worth double
that." You are a hireling.
Yes, I do believe a man needs to have an income. I'm not
talking about this. What I mean is that some Baptist CEOS
rape the people of their money, and then tell them, "I am God's
anointed. God will kill you if you don't take care of me, and
you better not question it."
The anointing sermon brought all this on. So many people
are run by theses "one man show boaters,"
because they think there isn't anybody qualified but them.
They WILL qualify you if you let them.
have been accused of everything except stealing a black baby and
painting it white! But, glory to God! Not one
accusation or accuser has come forth with any evidence.
So, pray for me as I pray for you as we tackle this subject with
Bible Truth. You will understand why we have proud haughty
men in position as lords over God's children.
P.S. Every question on this subject will be answered, but, can
you handle the truth?
DID Paul ever write to a Pastor and why is Pastor last
even behind evangelist Eph 4:11???
I know your guru would never tell you who to associate with or
what to wear or where to go and all the decisions are made of a
plurality of godly men in the church, so this is not for you.
It's to help those folks that hear, "I have rule over you, I am
going to give account for you, so you better do what I tell you,
or my church will break fellowship with you. I run
this church!" Ever hear that?
Our Baptist churches can't preach against Masons and their
Worshipful Masters. We've got them too! We call them
PASTORS! Now, don't write me complaining. You know I
am not talking about all Pastors in general, but like the queer
pastor said, "I am God's anointed, I've got rule over you,
I'm gonna give an account of your life, and you better not vote
me out." He didn't get that from the KJV. He got it
from the 2nd Book of Ignorance.
( I know that I repeated
my self but repetition is the mother of all teaching)
Part two Coming soon and I cannot wait)
